FIFA Upholds Barca’s Transfer Ban

FIFA have announced that they will uphold FC Barcelona’s transfer ban and have rejected the appeal by the Catalan giants.

Barcelona’s is to serve the transfer ban, which runs for two complete transfer periods, starting with the next transfer window in January as confirmed by football's governing body today.

The club’s appeal, however, postponed the original transfer ban allowed Barcelona to make transfers in this window during which the Blaugrana brought in the likes of Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic, Thomas Vermaelen, Jeremy Matthieu, Claudio Bravo and Marc-Andre ter Stegen for more than £129 million.

FIFA banned Barcelona due to irregularities with the signing of under-aged minors (younger than 18) for their famous youth academy, La Masia.

Barcelona also have to pay £300 000, while the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (RFEF) have to pay £330 000 for not implementing the necessary regulations to prevent club's from buying under-aged minors.

The club, however, can still buy more players until this transfer window closes and are likley appeal the ban in front of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
